Dave Hickey writes cultural criticism. He is former executive editor of Art in America and the author of Air Guitar. He has served as a contributing editor for the Village Voice and as the arts editor of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He is now a professor of English at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
"Dave Hickey's writing is exhilarating and deeply engaging. At its best, Dragon is both a time capsule of a period when dirty pictures could dismantle institutions and a provocation to reignite the conversation about the purpose of art." (Newsweek)"
